ABSTRACT
This paper reports on a software understanding study during adaptation of large-scale software by software maintenance professionals. The paper explains the general understanding process, the information needs of these software engineers during their tasks, and the tool capabilities that would help them to be more productive. We also contrast programmer behavior during adaptation with that during other maintenance activities like corrective maintenance and enhancement.
